It Looks Like a Wasp Gone Wrong...

...were the words that Grim uttered when I showed him this card that I made for the Stampotique Designers Challenge... cheek of it!!! He was referring to the spiders... so, do you think that they look like wasps gone wrong??? Feel free to tell me if they do... which obviously would then mean that you were taking Grim's side and I may have to go off in a huff ROFL




So, the challenge this time is a sketch and I just cannot resist a sketch... basically cos I am the laziest beggar when it comes to making cards and a sketch does all the thinking for me... erm, does that make me a baaaad crafter though? Well, whatever, this is a cool sketch... here it is:




I used Spider Girl, who came to live with me a few months ago and has been up on the shelf gathering... erm... cobwebs *see what I did there!!* And Spider himself... who appeared the same time as Spider Girl... I reckon he has had a massive party though... you should have seen the size of the real spider in my kitchen last night - no word of a lie, it was bigger than a tea cup, had 20 legs which were realllly hair and fangs the size of tusks! Tis true! Tis also very goodly that I am not afraid of Incy Wincy and his pals... in fact, I have to get up close to have a proper look cos some of them are so beautiful. Not however, when you pull the duvet back to get into bed and there is a spider, looking menacingly at you cos he thinks he has a right to sleep there... that was what happened last week... and... hilariously, Grim was already in the bed!!!




So, off at a tangent I went and am bringing myself back now to say... I used some Mini Misters, filled with Re-Inkers and water and Perfect Pearls... smooshed, spritzed and splodged all over the card stock to make a background... Blah, Blah, Blah stamped for wording... Two Sticks *ah little Two Sticks, my favest ever stamp in the World (well, for today at least)* was stamped, I drew on some petals and then painstakingly cut them out... 3D'd them... the *ahem* white pen on black scallop... was meant to look like cobwebs... it just looks like a baaaad mistake but hey, we are on a learning curve here aren't we??? Oh, just me then!!! LOL




All the stashy bits, stamps etc can be procured from The Stamp Attic... *whispers... if you click on the Workshops bit of the website you may see something there ;O))* That's all from me, bed is calling, hopefully spiderless tonight... looking forward to the C of C challenge later... more inky messyness to come! TTFN

Well I don't think they look like wasps gone wrong Hels. I love Spider - the stamp anyways, Lol! The real thing terrifies me.

Anyway, I think your card is great and I love the little lollipop flowers you so painstakingly made.

Hugs

OMG if I got into bed and found THAT I don't think I'd ever get back in that bed ever again!! Eeewww!!! As far as the "wasp gone wrong" thing... well I guess i can see where Grim saw that - I think it was the yellow and black stripes, so typically wasp-ish, but they're DEFINITELY spiders, NOT wasps. So, while I understand why he might have thought that, I'm definitely on YOUR side... PS - I made your 2nd tag for our swap today!! Two down, one to go... :) See you around the blog-o-sphere.
Hugs, Els.

Nancy said...

cuter tan a bed bug that is!!! Not to fond of spiders myself, well not anymore. When a was a teenager had a pet taranchula. (spelling?) boy that was a long time ago, guess I've grown up a bit . LOL

Helen said...

Love the card, colour is gorgeous! Don't like spiders at all, but wasps are worse!! Thanks for giving me a laugh first thing in the morning.

Kate said...

There's no doubt they are black and orange but I wouldn't say they were waspy - just Grim, lol. Very 'sweet' card.

I think the spiders and spider girl is awesome Hels, I love your colour choice....is it spiced marmalade? My 1st husband was afraid of spiders...me no, I used to find spiders and wait for the screams...cruel I know, but so much fun lol.
Have a great day hun :0)
*hugs* Heather x

Cool split border and petals round Sticks...my kind of thinking, works well here too Hels. I think the thing that makes this card though is the warm glow- that orange is fab.

Where is it you live again? I think I'll stay clear if thats what your wasps look like lol

Thanks for joining us on the Stampotique Challenge this week.

Joanne said...

Not really sure what they are but I hate spiders and am afraid of wasps (bad reaction to stings) so would not like to have them in my bed!! They look amazing on the cards though.
Luv Joanne xx

Fabulous card Hels, I can't stand the little hairy b....s but I can see where you are coming from some are (despite my loathing) quite beautiful! As for Grim and the wasp gone wrong, I think you may have to be a stamper to 'get' some of the more out there Stampotique designs,LOL
Thank you for the laughs this morning, very welcome:) xxx

Karen said...

Wasps???? er no sorry Grim....you need to go to Specsavers my love!!!! They are definitely spiders who play rugby!!!!!

I love your card in every way Hels XXX

w said...

No wasps in sight any where Hels! Not too keen on them critters myself, so not getting up close and personal, no thank you very much! Are you sure it was a spider when you pulled back the bed clothes! Grim didn't have any stray hairy bits! Maybe that is too personal to answer!

Carol Q said...
